Student Testimonial's

Ekta Rawal
- The learning experience on the cloud platform was better as compared to traditional classroom teaching methods. Both the DTD and SRM teams have been regularly in touch with students ensuring that the experience students get is uninterrupted and smooth. The DTD concept was simple and easy to understand. Anyone with internet connection and basic knowledge of computer can take advantage of this course. Faculty members were experts in their domains. Before every session, they ensured that the doubts of previous sessions were cleared. Communication was clear. The curriculum was designed by IIT-R. Students were asked to give presentations on current topics, which was a learning experience as it required a lot of research. The course can be a great value addition for those who would like to gain an overview of general project management concepts and skills or later move on to the expert level, especially for working professionals who cannot devote time for learning on weekdays. The course is also useful for those who live in tier 2-3 cities where there is a dearth of premier educational institutes like IIT.
